Ingredients for the dough :

How to :

How to build and bake the pie:
- Place a sheet of baking paper in a cast iron skillet (I am using a 6"skillet)
- Flatten the dough on a piece of baking paper
- Lay the flattened dough in the skillet and cut of the excess dough and baking paper
- Fill the cast iron skillet with the stuffing
- Use the excess dough to cover the pie
- Brush it with the eggwhite and place it in a pre-heated barbecue or oven at 175 degrees Celsius or 345 Fahrenheit.
- Bake the pie for about 45 minutes
- Let it cool down in the skillet and lift it out by the baking paper.
